"Excellent Macular clinic"

About: Leighton Hospital

Anything else?

I just want to take a minute to praise your team in the macular clinic. I have been blind in one eye since I was five years old, and I was recently diagnosed with wet macular degeneration in my good eye and I was petrified. Since attending your clinic I have received three Lucentis injections and my eyesight is certainly improving. On my second visit I could read twelve more letters on the sight chart, and on the third visit I could read an additional 6 more letters and I cried with delight,

Unfortunately I do not have all the names of those who should be recognised for their exceptionally professional care giving services. Very important to me are three of the consultants/opthalmologists their warmth, care and excellent first class service has been fantastic and I feel privileged to be cared for by them and the professional, caring, compassionate nurses.

Please extend my deepest appreciation to all of your staff for the wonderful care I am receiving. The treatment is certainly first class.
